I'm not sure if this Stromboli Pizzeria is related to the Stromboli by St. Marks Place, which I haven't been to in years, though it had sucked consistently for at least a decade the last time I was there, so I'm sure it still does. And this place sucks too! Booo!
This slice was shaped like Vanilla Ice's hair. While I usually find oddly shaped slices charming, this one was so skewed it was impossible to fold, which made eating it more of a chore than I desired. God forbid if I had tried to eat this piece of shit on the go! It was also really small for $2.75. And the taste! Where do I begin with this taste?
This slice was too saucy, too salty, and too cornmeal-y. Just like how I remember the pleasantly decent slice at Pizza Mercato being however many years ago. The sauce was disgustingly herbed up, which was overcompensating for the fact that it was basically just a bunch of nasty, cheap tomato paste. The crust was thick and dense like factory smoke off the Jersey Turnpike. There was no crunch and too much salt.

Dude, I said that!ReplyDelete
Also, St. Marks Pl is not the West Village but we all know what you mean.
Wow, I haven't been to this place in like 25 or 30 years. Your review makes it sound totally different than I remember. (Yes, I never forget a slice either.) Back in that day, they had a really nicely seasoned sauce which made for a good slice.ReplyDelete
